I get horrible city MPG, I think its mainly due to my city and my cars weight.

I weighed it in at 4000lbs with nobody in it but me. Going uphill to a stoplight every 300 feet really hurts city as a result. I get as low as 12 mpg sometimes on short trips through town. With some work I can get it into low 20s but most of my city trips arent short enough to get it up there. The car is barely up to temperature by the time I'm at the destination. Even with full grill block.

On the highway I've gotten as high as 35 MPG but I've averaged probably 32~ in summer and 28~ in winter under normal cruising. Automatic transmission
